Police think that a small newborn who was found headless and in deteriorating condition on a Spanish beach died in the same migrant boat accident that killed her parents.
The little body was found on July 11 along the beach in Roda de Bera, a Costa Dorada resort. Before examinations revealed that the newborn was significantly younger when she passed away, the infant’s age was initially estimated to be between two and three.
The girl has been recognized, according to Spanish police, who verified this today. She was an eight-month-old infant who perished on a migrant boat that capsized on April 6 close to the Balearic Islands.
The tragedy claimed the lives of fifteen individuals, including her parents.
The wooden boat, known as a patera in Spanish, had left Cherchel, Algeria, on March 21 and had been at sea for 17 days when calamity struck, according to the Civil Guard.
Pere Virgili, the mayor of Roda de Bera, speculated that the youngster may have been on a migrant boat that capsized in the Mediterranean on last Tuesday morning.
The possibility that this baby’s body came from the Mare Mortum off our shores was raised, he said.
According to him, the baby’s attire, which included a jacket, did not indicate that she would have drowned in a usual beach mishap.
Her body was in the sea for between a week and two months, according to forensic experts.
Her body was believed to have been discovered in a severe condition of decomposition and was said to be missing other components in addition to her skull.
DNA analysis has revealed a connection to her mother.
A week prior, a council cleaner discovered something dreadful and informed his superiors, who then phoned the police.
Before an investigating judge approved the disposal of the body, Civil Guard officers blocked off the area and relocated locals and vacationers to other areas of the sand.
Later, it was discovered that the decomposing body had washed ashore on the beach the day before but had been overlooked by onlookers who mistook it for a doll, it.
The city of Tarragona on the Spanish east coast is 25 minutes’ drive north of Roda de Bera.
